Default Re: Hard Drive Reliability >2TB

Have you looked at any cheap 2-bay NAS's. You could fit 2x2TB drives in RAID-1 and be pretty safe. If one drive breaks, you still have your data and you can replace the broken drive and have it automatically rebuilt.

But that means you need to buy a NAS and 2 drives... so more expensive.

Or you could forget the NAS and fit 2 drives internally in RAID-1 if you have the space.
